Tartan Campervan Hire Safety Tips

Take a Break, Relax and Enjoy the View…

The freedom to explore the Scottish Highlands in just a few days is often too tempting and it’s not uncommon to hear of incidents where Campervan drivers have become overtired and distracted at the wheel. Though it’s great that you are able to drive seemingly limitlessly through our breath taking scenery in your Tartan Camper, it is really important on long trips to factor in breaks for your own safety and to also give your classic VW Camper a well earned rest……

Scotland Welcomes Safe Driving…..

It’s not wise to drive for much more than eight hours a day and you definitely shouldn’t drive over three hours without a break. Though it can be tempting to push on, especially if you’re close to your destination, it really is better to be safe rather than sorry. Besides, the Scottish Highlands should be enjoyed at a more relaxed pace….

Share the Driving…..

It’s common for our customers to share the driving. This is a great idea, but you still need to make sure that you are well rested and comfortable. Driving on two or three hours sleep is still unwise and you’ll almost certainly need a long day’s rest when you arrive. It’s often better to do longer stints with lots of breaks than to keep swapping drivers intermittently.

When you’re feeling tired you need to give in and pull safely into somewhere you can stop and rest. Don’t push anything further than you need to and don’t forget that the beauty of a Tartan Camper is that it allows you to sleep anywhere! Be safe and enjoy the countryside relaxed and stress free…..
